Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has been voted the Professional Footballers Association's (PFA) English Premier League Player of the Year. Asked what it meant to become the first Egyptian to win the award, he said: "Hopefully, I'm not the last one".

"Also congrats to all the players who were [in contention with me] to win this award, because I think also they deserved it".

Also among the finalists were three other City players - David Silva and Leroy Sane - as well as Manchester United's David De Gea.

His sensational debut season at the Reds saw him score a total of 41 goals in all competitions, while breaking a number of records.

"There are still three games to go. Let's see what will happen".
